Everywhere she goes The brokenhearted follow her around They grab they push they pull they kiss the ground She walks upon Hoping for a glimpse or a touch to ease their suffering She is the queen The queen of misery It started long ago Although she is not very old She has the look of someone who is wise Beyond their years Tragedy just followed her around until she found She was the queen The queen of misery The queen of misery The queen of misery There's a story someone told Of how she helped a desperate soul Who'd lost heart regain faith and trust in love And lose their fear But when the pain and sorrow disappeared so did she She is the queen The queen of misery And all the lonely people in this world agree She is the queen The queen of misery The queen of misery The queen of misery She was standing in the shadowed Corner of Old I The music blasting dancers flying no one noticed Her at all I said is something wrong she laughed and smiled at me She said no I'm the queen of misery She said No no no no no no no I'm the queen of misery The queen of misery The queen of misery

You walk into this crowded room You're looking like somebody who Like true love might be waiting But everybody's in despair In need of some minor repair Just listen to what you're saying Don't start shouting words of love Don't say I'm the one you're dreaming of You just might be mistaken You don't know me You don't know me You don't even think about the time You lost your love you lost your mind But maybe you should remember We travel through this world alone With broken hearts on hearts of stone In boots of Spanish leather So please don't look at me that way I'm not about to save the day I'm not gonna be your love You don't know me You don't know me You don't know me You don't know me Now I'm not talking right or wrong But I'm nobody's Avalon You don't want to know this loneliness This emptiness this bitterness Why you messing with me But you come around and you come around You try to knock my whole world down And maybe it should be But violet satin crimson lace Or this whole damn world thrown in my face It's not gonna impress me You don't know me You don't know me You don't know me

Heather Robinson Just back from New York State In a shaky state of mind She had a hard time there Trouble every where The blade lay by her bed But Jonah saved her then They talked all night she said She'd get on the next plane Heather Robinson So Heather flew from there To Colorado where Her friend Karen took her in She called me once to say That she would be okay I had my doubts I held my breath Heather Robinson What are you running from Heather run to me Heather Robinson Well I first meet Heather here The Cafe Paris years She was married to my friend And they were very cool But they had problems too Separation and love dies It was so very hard They both had broken hearts Desperation moved in Heather Robinson It got real crazy then No one could understand The demons chasing Heather down And I thought it started here But I was wrong I fear And my suspicions leave me cold Heather Robinson What are you running from Heather run to me Heather Robinson She had a few affairs No need to mention here Autumn turned to winter freeze She lived with Zara who Introduced her to Eric it was New Years Eve But she was troubled still No way to break the chill Of a heart in pain Heather Robinson Well Hannah was the next And just like you'd expect You could see the sparks explode Then Heather met someone He said he'd take her from Our town away to New York State Heather Robinson What are you running from Heather run to me Heather Robinson Now I know this isn't fair To bare her soul right here I should probably keep it to myself But her whole family Abused her verbally And my heart screams out for revenge Oh yes I know it's wrong But I can't play along 'Cause I've got problems of my own Heather Robinson Heather Robinson What are you running from Heather run to me Heather Robinson

I've got my own personal Goddess I know it's hard to believe She's here to help me end my broken dreams She said we've all got our problems And mine was letting go Fear and pain had paralyzed my soul So I bow down before her I kneel down before her I lie down before her She is love I've got my own personal Goddess And her love lights the way For me to follow through my darkest day You say it sounds kind of crazy Well I don't disagree But she has been a saving grace for me So I bow down before her I kneel down before her I lie down before her She is love Goddess of love and understanding Help me to find a happy ending I've got my own personal Goddess Walking flesh and blood And everyday she fills my heart with love I know I don't have to tell you What she means to me She is full of magic and mystery So I bow down before her I kneel down before her I lie down before her She is love I've got my own personal Goddess Watching over me Watching over me Watching over me

Strange Bird 04:04
Such a strange bird I've discovered Unexpected unencumbered She is dancing in the moonlight Like it was God's own spot light Such a strange bird Such a strange bird At the counter she is talking Mystical unfolding In the heavens in the night sky The stars swim in her eyes Such a strange bird Such a strange bird Strange bird Strange bird As she glides through the crowd I watch her Fragmented glimpses of her And like a drummer my heart is pounding To a beat that's never ending Such a strange bird Such a strange bird She turns the corner now I've lost her So I get up to follow after And in the shadows she is waiting Laughing at my transcending Such a strange bird Such a strange bird Strange bird Strange bird Of feathers I am dreaming All around me gently falling On a bed of silk and leather Such a strange bird I've discovered Such a strange bird Such a strange bird Such a strange bird Such a strange bird

Brian Jones 03:10
I remember Brian Jones He started a band called The Rolling Stones They were really happening Took the world by storm made the young girls scream Things fell apart as their fame grew Until they found him face down in his pool Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Jones I can't remember my first love As hard as I pray to the stars above We were young and in a band But the rest is gone with the shifting sand Some traumatic incident Has blocked my mind from the thought of it Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Jones You think I'm making all this up My world is floating in a paper cup If I were you I'd take a look At everything I thought was true Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Jones The papers called a accident Too much to drink and drugs mixed with it But others thought it was suicide They bowed their heads while the young girls cried Or was it murder and were friends involved Another cover up that goes unsolved Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Jones Do you remember Brian Do you remember Brian Do you remember Brian Jones

I am on a ledge Balanced on a wire This must be the point of no return I don't want to hear I don't want to know I don't want to talk about it now Love let me be Love let me be In the cold gray dawn I lie here undone Broken by the weight of letting go I don't move I don't want to dream I don't want to feel you next to me Love let me be Love let me be So bring down the moon Daughters dark and grim You can spare me this final appetite I don't want to think I don't want to see I don't want to face my demon's need Love let me be Love let me be Love let me be

She goes home alone at night She has the feeling that something's just not right She goes home alone She makes a cup of tea then reads She'll feed the cat then watch TV Trying hard to be strong But I wonder how much more she can take How much love can we lose before we break Tell me it's all in my head She goes home alone at night She tells the world she'll be all right She counts the stars until it's light She counts the starts at night There's a clock up on her wall You can hear it tick but there's no hands at all I know it's odd but it's cool And If someone told me this I'd think that it's strange I might even laugh to escape the pain Hiding the truth from myself When I asked her what she did on nights When storm clouds hid the stars from sight She said she counts each drop of rain She goes home alone at night She tells us that she'll be all right She counts the stars until it's light She counts the starts at night She said this can world be so hard to face She said this world can be to much to take She said this world can be a lonely place But when she said she thought she was a lot like me I dropped my cup I spilled her tea So surprised I couldn't speak Well she shrugged it off and then shied away I couldn't see it then but I can see it today Just one tear frozen in time She goes home alone at night She tells me that she'll be all right She counts the stars until it's light She goes home alone at night She tells us that she'll be all right She counts the stars until it's light She counts the starts at night She counts the starts at night

I saw you standing in the very first row You waved me over and then during the show You said your band needed a drummer So I started pounding on your shoulders I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum You said your heart sank 'cause there wasn't a band I reached out to you and while holding your hand I said it's really not a problem Between you and me we don't need you I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum You said it's sounding kind of strange And if I would could I explain Well all this talk of drummers drumming Just means my heart is overflowing I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum Then you got this funny kind of look in your eyes I thought I'd blown it man but I was surprised 'Cause you said it's like that Beatle song Then shook your head and played along I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum I'll be your drummer if you'll be my drum

Lonely Girl 02:59
She's a lonely girl A product of a broken home Now she lives alone She's a lonely girl But happiness has found her Built a wall around her where no one can go Oh and don't you love the way she smiles Don't you love the sparkle in her eyes When she smiles When she smiles She's a lonely girl Living in a world of pain Yet no one's to blame She's a lonely girl Hiding in sorrow There's no tomorrow there's only today Oh and don't you love the way she smiles Don't you love the sparkle in her eyes When she smiles When she smiles Oh she's such a lonely girl So serious and yet It feels like heaven is in her eyes And it won't let me forget She's a lonely girl But laughter hasn't passed her by It's just hard to find She's a lonely girl So hard to measure It's now or never or get left behind Oh and don't you love the way she smiles Don't you love the sparkle in her eyes When she smiles When she smiles When she smiles When she smiles

I sit here in the dark In this cold empty room I can still see your face I can still I can still hear you saying I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart But I'm leavin' you And you said there's a light At the end of this road But I don't see no light All I see Is you leavin' and saying I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart But I'm leavin' you You say Isn't love a crazy dance Isn't like a game of chance You say What is love supposed to be You know I just can't think When you keep saying to me I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart In this cold empty room Shadows rip at my heart Voices scream in my head And through my tears I hear you whispering to me I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart I don't wanna break your heart But I'm leavin' you
